Remotely accessing admin context on transparent mode ASAs

I'm taking over admin of an active/standby pair of ASAs running 7.2(3) with two contexts running in transparent mode.

Apparently there is no admin context configured on there. I need to remotely access system execution space so will need the admin context configured with a management IP.

I'm unsure on a couple of things here, like whether I can use a router-on-a-stick type config and just assign the admin context an IP address on the Outside or whether I need to allocate the inside and outside Vlans and create a BVI?

E.g can I create the admin context from system, assign it the outside interface eth0, then use something like:

interface eth0

nameif outside

security-level 0

ip address

no shut


route outside


ssh my_remote_ip Outside

Any advice would be very much appreciated!
